      I just read your article on the pecan pie but, I don't see the comment tab yet. I hope HP makes the comment ability back to live. By the way, I love pecan pie cake.

    Good news for you foodies, although I read your pecan pie article and didn't see how to comment.  Oh well, this should come as no surprise, but I don't like pecan pie. Sorry! I wish I did so I could say something really nice about this topic...how about this...I love your writing style? smile

    Bill, it's not on Delishably yet. Perhaps later today or tomorrow. Thanks for your kind words. It's good to be back here.

    I am so happy to see one of your wonderful articles. I really like pecan pie (but not the calories). You have given us several delicious recipes, along with all the wonderful pictures. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful article that I am sure will ultimately be posted on Delishably.

    That is great news!  Thanks for letting us know, Linda.

    That is excellent! Good to see your articles back, Linda, and comments returning to Delishably. I hope they return to all the niche site, and HubPages, or is that just “pecan pie in the sky?” haha.

    That is good news. Hopefully other sites will soon follow.

    But, do we get a notification when a comment is made? Without that facility the comment system is useless.

    For example, I wrote an article about Bull Connor, the police chief in Birmingham, Alabama who set dogs and water cannon on civil rights activists. Someone commented that he thought Connor was a great man who made the n*****s understand their place. Of course, I deleted his racist comment, but without notification from HP I would never know such responses had landed on my page.

    I can't scan more than 800 articles on a regular basis to see if, perchance, someone has left a comment.

      I'm not sure. In the "good old days" there would be a red number in the upper right hand corner of our profile picture indicating that there was a comment(s) that needed to be monitored. Perhaps that still works. I'll let  you know.

    Thank you for the heads up and good news. I went and checked one of my delishably articles, and yes! Comments are in full force.

    I am really sorry for I am going to spoil the mood.... smile wink

    Do you know that the ability to comment has been returned on Delishably but the already existing comments on articles are gone??

    I was having 22 comments on this article. It shows zero. I thought it might be some glitch so later I checked other articles from different writers. It's the same everywhere!

      I'm still seeing old comments.

      I checked only two of mine as I looked at them all yesterday to write down comment numbers, but the two I looked at just now still had their old comments.

      I looked on my phone & computer to make sure it wasn't device specific. I only checked one other article because I have no idea which ones would have comments and it appeared to still have all the old ones too.

      I would guess you are seeing a glitch, but I think I found the article you are talking about and I'm not seeing comments on that one either. So strange. I hope they are not planning to delete old comments.

        Misbah786posted 12 months agoin reply to this

        Thank you so much for your kind response. You are correct. I think I've figured it out. Articles written before the 20th of October display comments, while those written or updated  after that date don't. I just discovered it after visiting Linda's article. She updated her article a few hours ago. I have written mine in October but updated it in November. I think the articles that are written/updated in the end dates of October or in November are not showing comments.  smile

          Misbah786posted 12 months agoin reply to this

          No, not October. I believe the ones published or updated in November do not show comments. Strange!

          So, if we will update our Delishably articles now onwards, we'll lose the previous comments? Not sure!

            Now that you mention it, I remember someone else asking the team on the AxleAddict thread about that with their article on Letterpile I believe.

            It would be a shame if updating somehow causes those comments to be erased. Depending on the comments they can bring great value to our articles.

            Hopefully the team can shed some light on why that is happening.

              Whatever the case may be, but it is really strange.

    What's the technical problem preventing our real name being displayed in comments?

    1. Shesabutterfly profile image94
      Shesabutterflyposted 12 months agoin reply to this

      I vaguely remember staff saying something along the lines of, if we used the email that we have with HP it would automatically show our username that we created when we initally joined. If we wanted a different name or to use our real name (to match the author of the articles) we had to create an account with a different email address.

  14. Carb Diva profile image94

    I have no idea, and that's totally above my pay scale. Good question.

  15. Peggy W profile image95

    I just checked my number one article getting the most attention on Delishably and looked to see the comments.  They list 100 comments, but I had to scroll through 47 (yes, 47) picture ads to get down to where someone could sign in and potentially make a comment.  That does not include the ads in the piece itself!  I am not sure everyone has as many ads on their pieces?  Who would work that hard to make a comment?

    Also, without notifications that we have comments, it would be impossible to find them for those of us with hundreds of articles.  Please, HubPages, help!  Hopefully, we will still get to approve comments before they appear.  Rupert makes a good point about the need to approve comments before they land on our pages.

  16. Carb Diva profile image94
    Carb Divaposted 12 months ago

    Peggy, I agree, the ads are horrible. And I published Monday; my article went live on Delishably on Thursday. Too late. Anyone who received a notice in their email that I had published a new hub has long given up on being able to comment. Notifications need to be sent out when a hub hits the niche site. I typically get 30+comments. My new hub has zero.

      I'm not on Delishably yet. But that's terrible.

  17. Jodah profile image91

    I just notice that the “comment” button is gone from the articles on LetterPile. It no longer appears next to the Facebook and Pinterest icons under the lead video, or at the end of the article. But the comment window and comments are there..all the way down beneath the “Around the Web” advertised articles…if anyone knows to scroll all the way past all that. There is no indication on the article itself that there are comments. It seems the same on Delishably as well.
    I see this isn’t the case with AxleAddict. It is still the same as before.

      John, I can still see the "comment" button next to Pinterest and Facebook icons and at the end of article as well. I guess you are experiencing some sort of a glitch. Maybe try logging out and in or maybe try another device. I am on my mobile device at the moment and can see it.

      Oh no! It's something strange and funny going on. I was able to see the comment button on LetterPile but when I refresh the page all of the 3 icons (Pinterest, Facebook and Comment) are gone. This is confusing yikes

      1. Shesabutterfly profile image94
        Shesabutterflyposted 11 months agoin reply to this

        I initally see the icons and comments too. I wonder if there is a glitch with refreshing? After I refreshed they were gone, but when I clicked to read a new article they were on there. I don't think many readers will be refreshing the page, so hopefully it won't be too much of a problem?

        I wonder if they are working on new features. Delishably is a mess. I did not initally see any icons or comments on Delishably, but when I went to another article to take a screenshot of the new video they were there, but I do not see them on all articles. The inconsistency is annoying.

        Some articles have just the new video and others have the new one and the HP one, or just an HP video. The pages are loading ridiculously slow. I wish they would quit tinkering with the sites. I thought they were removing ads not adding new ones and slow videos at that.

          I thought this new ad/video whatever it is, was only on Delishably. Turns out it is on WanderWisdom too? Makes no sense and is completely unrelated...

          I've done some more digging on this ad or video, I'm assuming video since it appears where the HP video should be. Wanderwisdom, Wehavekids, Delishably, AxleAddict, & Tatring all have the same one. Dengarden has a different one, and Pethelpful/Owlcation share the same one.

          eugbugposted 11 months agoin reply to this

          Possibly because the cached article you read was being displayed, if you read it before. Refreshing reloads the new version.

            Shesabutterflyposted 11 months agoin reply to this

            I'm pretty sure I clicked on all new articles, but I honestly don't know now. I double checked and of the 3 new articles I looked at, 1 had them and the other 2 did not. Makes me think maybe I have already seen the first one and didn't remember reading it.

            I don't know, but I'm seeing it on all the comment sites. Articles I know I haven't read are showing icons sometimes, but not always. I don't read AxleAddict so I know the ones from early Dec I haven't looked at yet and they do not have the icons.

            I think it might be tied to the date they were updated? Similarily to the old comments disappearing if the author updated the article, I wonder if the icons disappear? I was looking at articles from 2019 on Delishably (because it has the feature that tells you when it was last updated) and the ones that have not been updated were showing the icons, however the ones created or updated in 2020-2021 where not showing the icons.

          It's a serious challenge that calls for a throughly fix.                                      Is Hubpages up to the challenge or do they call for an outsider to fix the dirty work?

  18. Jodah profile image91

    This is strange and sure has me scratching my head. Maybe it is all just part of the work the team are currently engaged in making the comments workable and improving the advertising layout.
